Default Canadian Mystery

I'm defeated trying to identify this one. Been through Mazeas, no luck.
Now wondering if it is military at all? Maker mark to the reverse is W. Scully. (visible left of centre, below the pin in the photo). Looks like this has an applied 'OSD' type finish and is a large badge at 67mm wide. Pin fixing looks 'as issued'.

Any clues?

Many thanks, I didn't notice the circular thing was representative of the letter "O". Found the organisation online now.
